Hasbro items for Wonder and also Celebrity Wars favorably added to earnings and also POS in the quarter. Where we have actually had our most difficult compensations are NERF and also Hasbro Video Gaming
POS is “factors of sale” btw. suggesting an online or traditional store that in fact markets Celebrity Wars playthings.
The main discussion states this regarding Celebrity Wars:
YTD Development driven by Hasbro items for the Wonder profile and also Celebrity Battles.

Naturally greater costs likewise have an impact below.
COO Eric Nyman had this to claim regarding licenses like Celebrity Wars when he was asked exactly how a certificate such as Disney Princesses, which is relaxing, impacted points.
So you’re visiting us with that said development in those Franchise business Brands and also the Companion Brands that we’re mosting likely to remain behind like Celebrity Wars and also Wonder. As well as we’re mosting likely to leave a few other.
As Well As there you have it.
